    My first choice... but it's a girl and she didn't agree to it. [​IMG]

    You don't like it? It's not finalized since we haven't decided on one.

    Well, if you like it it, but a couple things:

    1) It's overwrought.

    2) You are not going to call her "Sartoria" all the time since it's four syllables. I hope you like the sound of Sart, Sarty, or S.

    3) People are going to think it's a weird name and ask you what it means. Then they will know it is.

    I just think it's silly to mix hobbies in that way. What if you stop caring so much about clothes? How are you going to explain it to the neighbours or the vet? Are your kids going to think that's a fun name? I guess the closest analogy I can come up with is having seat covers for your Honda made from H&S summer weight cashmere. If you do go through with it, get a pug or Boston terrier. Then you can call it Sart for short and tell people it's named after Sartre.

    I dig it. If you're worried about what others think I wouldn't do it, but go for it if you can muster the nuts to NGAF.

    I don't think we're going with the name. Just don't like how it sounds as much.
